Hospital Time

Standard

*

in silence

is solace

is healing

.

in silence

sleeps comes

taking me places

.

while my healing

is weaved inside

my wounded body

.

silence is planning

my next steps to

warn off the enemy

.

that came inside

as shift as a thief

the cancerous cells

.

Children Asleep

Standard

*

how many times

have I tried to

describe the

feeling of

tenderness

arising in me

in a poem

.

as I walked the

garden at night

at dusk or through

cloudy days when

your little heads

are reclined all

closed down as

.

children asleep

.

the daisies would

not hear me

nearing them

a motherless

woman being

the greatest

mother of all

.

Light

Standard

*

approaching the day
with dancing
thoughts

to linger in god’s
presence
light

that stays with me
at night
and in my slumber

.

as I contemplate

morning light peaking

through cold mornings

.

it’s the sound of the wind

running low on the streets

that gets my attention

.

getting distracted

following fast

moving

.

dried leaves

rustling through

disappearing

.

as dawn catches

up with me

behind my back

On Tenderness – Dec.2021

Standard

*

where did my soul go

she’s hurt and offended

she’s hiding from me

from others I will go now

looking for her I will

walk long step after step

until the blood pumps

until the heart awakens

until my legs hurt no more

until I could hear my soul’s

voice calling me out to be

taken softly in my arms
